I have this exact laptop, bought refurbished from a big-box retailer's website (the one where the greeter loves you) for $60 less than woot's price, though mine doesn't have the blu-ray drive.
It is a very nice laptop, and has really good audio. However, it is big and heavy.
One thing which is not immediately obvious from the pictures is that the 9-cell battery protrudes from the bottom of the laptop -- notice how in the pics that the hinged end of the laptop looks like it is "floating"? That's because the battery protrudes a good 3/4 of an inch from the bottom of the laptop. Not bad if using this on a desk, but not so good when using it on your lap or carrying it in a case. One nice thing about the protruding battery is it can act somewhat like a carrying handle (the metal case is slippery).
Battery life is really good, I regularly get 4+ hours on high performance settings with full display brightness.
I'm not a gamer, so I can't comment on gaming performance, but I have heard others say it is "pretty good" (read: average). The 1.4 GHz processor spec is a bit misleading, in that the AMD A6 throttles up to 2.3 GHz as needed.
Overall performance for most everyday tasks is pretty good. This thing is not a mega-speed-demon, but you aren't going to get that at this price point anyway.
Windows Experience Index ratings:
Memory (RAM): 7.3
Gaming graphics: 6.5
Primary hard disk: 5.9
Display is clear and bright.
Bonus: this laptop supports two internal hard drives (without removing the optical drive). Nice if you want to add a SSD for the OS but still have a large conventional drive for mass storage.
Woot's writeup doesn't mention it, but this laptop does have a fingerprint reader as well (rectangle on lower right just below numeric keypad).
Weird: the hard drive activity light is on the side of the laptop case (beside the right-side USB ports), so you can't see it easily when using the laptop.
All in all its a solid buy (new this model is in the $700-ish range), as long as you don't mind a big, heavy laptop.
